  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME) is in charge of the energy policy through the Department of Energy. Since July 2019, MME has authority to manage all activities in the petroleum industry, from exploration and business development to the creation of a master plan governing oil and gas transportation and distribution networks; the responsibilities assigned to MME were previously ...

  • Energy Supply


    Little is still known about the country's potential resources. The hydro potential of the country is estimated at about 10 GW. The crude oil resources are estimated at 183 mbl and natural gas resources at around 50 bcm (end of 2018).

  • Energy Prices


    Electricity prices are among the highest in the ASEAN region. They are around US$17c/kWh for households and US$13c/kWh for industry (2018).

    There are still wide disparities in tariffs among different provinces because of the absence of a unified national network; in Preah Vihear for example, households pay as much as US$50c/kWh.

    In April 2018, EAC agreed to cut power prices for ...

  • Energy Consumption

    Per capita energy consumption was 0.52 toe in 2018, including about 510 kWh of electricity. This is relatively low compared to neighbouring countries.

    Total consumption has been increasing rapidly since 2008, at around 10.5%/year and reached 8.5 Mtoe in 2018.

    Biomass still dominates the energy mix (54% in 2018), although its contribution has been declining due to the increased ...

  • Issues & Prospects

    In October 2019, ADB confirmed a 5-year country partnership strategy with Cambodia: US$1.45bn will be provided for renewable energy infrastructure and natural resources management, inter alia, with the aim of diversifying the sources of growth and building climate resilience.
